US represents over 50% of XBO sales so globally it did less than 200k in January. That meane PS4 and Switch did more in the US than XBO did globally.
I suppose we shouldn't really be surprised. I mean, I hope this doesn't come off as trolling, but there's not really that much reason to buy an Xbox One at this point to be honest. You can play almost every game it has on PS4 and/or PC. It's just kind of an awkward, pointless third wheel in the current console space.
If Halo, Gears, unbundling Kinect, price cuts, a slim, and the X haven't reversed its fortunes, its really a lost cause.
I mean, no disrespect to those who own one and enjoy it, but its easy to see why its sales are weak.
But they DID reverse its fortune. I mean, taking into account how bad it was at the reveal, this could have a been really a Wii U situation. In fact, given the fact that the MS brand is nowhere near as recognized as Nintendo's worldwide, I would say that the OG X1 had everything to bomb even harder than the Wii U.
And yet, when everything is said and done, the X1 will have outsold 4 out 7 Nintendo's home consoles (not counting VB). Again, given how strong is Nintendo's brand, can we really consider that as such a bad thing?
